Some more great pet photography from my wife, this time of our rescue Hermann’s tortoise, Gus!

Found throughout southern Europe, Testudo hermanni have been a heavyweight champion in the reptile community for decades. Rarely growing larger than 7½ inches, it’s important to remember that these adorable tortoises are a long-term commitment

the oldest known specimen from the UK lived over 130 years! 🐢
